Fraser Park

Fraser Park in East Victoria Park is named for James McIntosh FRASER (1889-1961) Perth City Councillor for the Victoria Park Ward 1928-1937. Later Federal Senator. Born in Scotland and emigrated to Australia at the age of 23 in 1911. Married Ellen SIMMONS in 1912. It would seem that Fraser Park was named first, as one of the bordering streets is Fraser Park Road, suggesting it was named after the Park.
